“What do you want to drink?”

“I’ll have a coke”

“Coke, with?”

“Just a coke is fine”

“W*f? What happened?”

“I don’t drink alcohol”

“Damn, how come? Is it religious?”

I laugh every time I have this conversation, which is inevitable every time I go out with someone new. Yup, I haven’t had a sip of alcohol ever (well, at least intentionally. I once accidentally had a sip of a friend’s drink while holding it for him, thinking it was my coke.) and no, it is not religious.

I’m not against the idea of drinking and I enjoy going out…
